Since we're doing reposts here's an old tutorial. i pretty much still do everything the same!
hello pals!

this is my first tutorial - it’s a hyper-lapse so i’ve broken down each step below for more clarity:

today we’re talking patterns, since this is my most asked question! (caution long post)

product used for pattern:
sulky 8.5 by 11 printable sticky fabri-solvy

1) place completed pattern on hoop and sew as usual.
tip: start in the middle of the sulky pattern, it’ll help stabilize it from moving around later.
2) finish sewing. then use small & sharp scissors to carefully cut away as much of the sulky pattern as possible.
tip: removing majority of the pattern before washing can help avoid a longer wash time and prevent staining the fabric with the printed “inky” portions of the pattern.
3) wash off sulky pattern in cool / lukewarm water - important. take your time, and be gentle!
tip: always ensure you’re rinsing all “inky” parts of the pattern off the fabric completely, not just from under the embroidered parts… these “inky” flakes tend to get stuck to the fabric if not fully rinsed off and can leave ugly stains (on light fabric / floss especially).
4) iron finished project until dry, using temperature suitable for the fabric you are working with.
tip: i always use tweezers to pull out any remaining pattern before ironing. be careful because if some pattern is still there and you iron its “locked in” for good.
step 5 & onwards… (these are my personal finishing hoop techniques and don’t have to do with sulky patterns)
5) put project back in stained hoop and trim excess fabric around edges, leaving about half an inch of room around the whole hoop.
6) fold excess fabric into the back of the hoop while simultaneously hot gluing it to inside of hoop frame.
7) i use card stock for my hoop backing, then i place my logo sticker on top. i then write on the year and my initials on the back. sometimes i put eh or js, there is no consistency lol
8) use hot glue again to glue card stock around the edges of the hoop frame.
9) then check that everything is secure before calling it a day and going to eat a snack.
